Accessing SF printer profiles using Corel PSP x8Pro

Postby kengee » Thu Sep 10, 2015 7:19 pm

Have created specific .icc profiles for my Epson R1800 printer using Silverfast Print Calibration option in 8.5v of this program. These new .icc files have been stored in
Win 10 System 32/Spool/Drivers/Color alongside other Epson Print/paper profiles.
However, when attempting to set up the correct printer parameters in the PSPx8 program/ Preferences/Colormatching dialogue I am unable to access these Silverfast calibration profiles although all of the Epson generated paper profiles are available. How can I access these specially created profiles?
I realize that this not strictly a Silverfast problem but I'm hoping that your maybe greater experience may provide an answer. Although I note that the SF calibration file is stored as an .icc type, is it possible that other charactoristics make the file unrecognizable by PaintShop Pro?
I should note that my new monitor calibration profile which is also stored in the system 32 folder does load into PSP8 color management. So the directory is accessible.

Dear customer,

You might want to direct that question at the PaintShop Pro support.
They can help you better regarding their software.
But check the access rights on the profiles.

Kind regards,
Arne Ketelhohn.

Thank you for your reply. I have indeed put the same request to Corel Paint shop Pro help. However I was assuming that Lasersoft may have better knowledge of this particular problem. I have checked the veracity of created the calibration file using the ICC File Inspector program. This confirms that it conforms to the ICC standards even though it has an ICM suffix. In the PSPx8 guide it does say that the program will only allow correctly designated profiles. Whether, for some reason it will reject the .icm ending I have yet to find out.

I will keep you posted as to Corel's response.

Dear Kangee,

you can freely rename the suffix to .icc.
The two endings can be used equally. It is possible that there are software products which either only accept .icc or .icm. But there is no technical reason for that.
Color profiles store all the necessary information in the metadata.

Kind regards,
Arne Ketelhohn.
